Alternate Reality D7 Class Pack Alternate Reality D7 Class Pack

The D-7 was the workhorse for the Empire from the late 2240s well into the 2270s. With several different variations
and upgrades, the D-7 was able to keep up with the advancement made by the Federation. In the late 2260s, a technology
exchange with the Romulan Star Empire, expanded the D-7s role as the Romlulan Stormbird. In the exchange, the Klingons
received the cloaking device. In 2269, Captain James Kirk took the Enterprise, under the guise of going rogue, into
the Romulan Neutral Zone and was able to steal one of the cloaking devices. This allowed the Federation to develop a
means to detect a cloaked ship. Though the detection was flawed (detection wasn't made till a cloaked ship was upon
the intended victim), it was still enough of a deterrent that neither empires attempted a full scale invasion.

Thank you for downloading my AR D-7 class pack. In this pack you will find my D-7A, D-7K and the Romulan Stormbird.
They have been inspired in design by the recent Star Trek movie. If you want some villains to go with the new
Constitution, Miranda and all those other AR Fed ships, then this will be a good place to start. I hope that
this will inspire other modders to make more villain ships for the Alternate Universe.

Awesome work man, good to see some more AR stuffs here. They need more support LOLZ

AR must be alternate reality. I was thinking these don't look like D-7's. nice work though.

They do seem to be missing a couple of details (proper warp grilles), but even so, these are pretty good. Great work. Well done =)

Thank you for the compliments (lets me know I am doing something right) and the criticism (lets me know what I need to work on).


I did mean for the file title to be "AR D-7 Class Pack"


As for the details, I am not that good at doing textures. I do have nacelle grills on the D7 K and I intentionally left them off the D7 A and Stormbird as a sort of technology progression.

AM I missing the D7K textures? I opened it and it looks like a build button. And it is not the wrong one... ARD7K.tga looks like a build button. Can you email me the correct texture? If you can't I guess I'll try making a set from the other textures.

Omega Mod God, I am sorry for the missing textures. The build button you see is actually the one I wanted for the actual build button. I have submitted the correct textures to the site.
